The Friday Funhouse


The Video of the Week

NOTE: apologies for the lack of the Funhouse last week, was busy graduating my daughter from high school!

I just finished my 10-years in the making book on glass fly rods, so they've been on my mind. I found this interview with Cameron Mortenson of the Fiberglass Manifesto blog and thought it was cool.



12 Thing I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them

You don't see too many Frank Knill Spoons on Cards.



Whoah. This ABU 5500CDL in Teak Box is out of this world cool.
